The program offers a great selection for all ages and tastes. The volunteers are exceptional, the exhibition either at the community "corridor", the Grotto Gallery or the Main Gallery are always a treat! I love the way it is made accessible for the families as we can raised budding art lovers !

Very impressive line up of worldly entertainment can be seen right here in Whitehorse. Excellent seating and sound system as long as bone heads turn OFF their cell phone. Web site is the only thing that sucks about the Art Centre. Hard to navigate and harder to rely on for booking tickets.

When I moved here 10 years ago, I was amazed to find there was such a great performing arts facility here. This is a very intimate type of theater-not too big so every seat is a good seat. Great effort is put into bringing in a variety of artist and local performers. Locals look forward to such events as the... More

Went to a concert last night at the Arts Centre. What an excellent venue for music. Small enough, tiered enough and very nicely organized. I would certainly recommend going if there's something happening there that you would like to see!

We attended an interestng and well-produced biography of Ted Harrison, the Yukon's most famous artist. It is a beautiful theatre with warm and friendly staff.

Did not expect to have access to such a wide variety of quality entertainment programs so close to the down town area. Take the time to check the program schedule while you are in town. It is worth it.
